Creator/JohnCarpenter's '''''Starman''''' is a kind of ''[[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]]'' for adults, played as a RoadTripPlot of all things. Fans will argue that it's a beautiful, beautiful love story between [[AlienAmongUs a man from the stars]] (JeffBridges) and an Earthling woman (Karen Allen) while dissenters will argue that it's a mediocre ClicheStorm.
